Conflict, insecurity, political instability and a collapsing economy will continue to plague Libya in 2017. Currently 1.3 million Libyans, refugees, migrants and asylum seekers urgently need humanitarian assistance. Affected people have little or no access to life-saving health care, essential medicines, food, clean and safe drinking water, shelter and education. Meanwhile landmines, explosive hazards, and the proliferation of small arms and light weapons impede safety and security in Sirte, Benghazi and other locations across the country. In 2016, despite a highly insecure environment and very limited funding, international humanitarian organizations were able to provide assistance. As of October 2016, humanitarians were able to provide 300,000 people with medicines and medical supplies. Food was distributed for 114,000 beneficiaries; shelter and NFI materials were distributed to 56,000 people; and 53,000 vulnerable people benefited from WASH activities. Child protection and psychosocial support services were provided and protection interventions were carried out on behalf of some 75,000 people. As many as 66,000 refugees, asylum seekers and migrants were assisted. The 2017 humanitarian plan focuses sharply on life-saving support through safe and dignified access to health services and essential medicines, and through basic social services such as food, water, hygiene, sanitation, shelter and education. Failure to provide funding would leave almost 1 million people without the most basic humanitarian assistance. Without support, 439,000 children will be deprived of psychosocial support, community based child protection services and community reintegration to overcome the trauma caused by gender-based or other violence.

In 2017, IOM aims to continue the provision of life-saving multi-sectorial services to meet the needs of the most vulnerable migrants in Libya through the provision of food, shelter and non-food items, health, protection, WASH and humanitarian repatriation. IOM will provide displaced Libyans with psychological first aid and referral services, humanitarian assistance through the provision of non-food items and provide reintegration packages to vulnerable returnees and communities of return. Through its Displacement Tracking Matrix IOM aims to further enhance the effectiveness and coordination of the delivery and targeting of humanitarian assistance through collection and provision of evidence-based information on population movements and needs.
